Saskatchewan province has made a huge change to its Occupations In-Demand list, used for both the Saskatchewan Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand streams of the International Skilled Worker category. SINP streams will now accept applicants with one year of continuous work experience in any skilled NOC, as long as it does not appear on the SINP Excluded Occupation List.


The Express Entry Sub Category

The Saskatchewan Express Entry stream is linked to the federal Express Entry Pool. Candidates who are already in the Express Entry pool and who meet the requirements to succeed in Saskatchewan may be selected for a provincial nomination.

Express Entry candidates with a provincial nomination receive an additional 600 points towards their Comprehensive Ranking score. Given that most federal draws require CRS scores over 400, a provincial nomination practically guarantees an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence.

Occupations In-Demand

Candidates eligible for the Occupation in Demand sub-category who receive a provincial nomination have their applications for Canadian permanent residence processed outside the Express Entry system. Though a job offer is not required for this sub-category, a key eligibility requirement for both the Express Entry and Occupations In-Demand sub-categories is to have experience in one of the 19 occupations currently listed as in demand in Saskatchewan.

The SINP has issued 1,789 invitations through its Occupation In-Demand sub-category, and 1,315 through its Express Entry sub-category so far in 2019. The number of invitations issued in the August 15 draw (150) shows a marked decrease from the previous draw on July 24, which saw 381 invitations issued.
